=============================
The sgmlop accelerator module
=============================

sgmlop contains an optimized SGML/XML parser, designed as an add-on to
the sgmllib/htmllib and xmllib modules shipped with Python 1.5.

This driver is typically 5-10 times faster than the original xmllib
implementation.  When using sgmlop's native interface, it can be more
than 50 times faster.

release info
------------

This is a bugfix release.  It addresses the following issues:

SGMLOP1: SGML files containing text only wasn't properly handled.  the
parser never consumed the last character, not even if the 'close'
method was called (reported by Walter D�rwald)

SGMLOP2: Unicode strings (under 1.6) were treated as binary buffers.
In this release, the parser can properly parse 16-bit strings, but the
callbacks get 8-bit UTF-8 strings, not true Unicode strings.  This
will be fixed in a future release.

SGMLOP3: The 'close' method no longer accepts an optional argument.
Use a separate call to 'feed' instead.

SGMLOP4: Recursive calls to 'feed' or 'close' (from within a call-
back) could lead to all sorts of weird problems.  This version checks
for this condition, and raises an AssertionError instead.
